  • Need a Primal/Paleo food that is filling and affordable

    I'm poor. Just a college student and working full time. I remember over at my friends house about two weeks ago. We just had a t-bone steak without any barbecue sauce and water to drink. Primal as can be. I was very satisfied after I ate it. Too bad meat is too much money for me.

    I don't mind cooking any recipes. As long as that food is very filling and affordable. That's all that matters to me. Even better if I can eat it almost everyday. I ate one canned salmon with some vegetables. I still was hungry after I ate that. Not sure why I was still hungry.

    Liver. Very affordable, filling and immensely satisfying. And nobody is going to try to share it with you either

          I second eggs.

          Pancake: Blend two eggs, one banana, cook both sides in a small hot buttered frypan.

            Probably because you're a poor college student also working fulltime. Not to mention being a fitness fanatic. You gotta eat.

              If you cant stomach liver, try heart. Its pure muscle, just like steak; so its not as "offaly" as liver etc..

              If you have time to slice it up like stir fry beef you'll hardly know the difference. Just be careful; it can go very tough, so fry it very quickly or stew it very slowly!

                Potatoes, sweet potatoes, common fruits like apples and bananas, chicken/pork/eggs are all diet cheap, as are cheaper and tougher cuts of beef.

                Learn to use a slow cooker. Make food in batches and freeze.

                  My student staples:
                  -potatoes (7.5kg bags from LiDL, about 3)
                  -liver (lamb's liver is grass-fed and 2-2.48/kg)
                  -bananas (69p/kg)
                  -eggs (8-10p each if you're not fussed about free-range)
                  -yoghurt (1.3/kg at LiDL)
                  On top of that:
                  -pop into EVERY local supermarket on your way home and buy any meat that's been discounted to below 4/kg
                  -go to the local market once or twice a week; they usually do random "value bags" with veg they need to shift, I got 16 bananas, 6 beets with some greens and 4 HUGE parsnips for 2 this week
                  -visit West-Asian stores, they sell spices, nuts, fruit and dairy in bulk at decent prices
                  -East-Asian stores have cheap frozen fish
                  -cook in bulk; put the oven on and roast as much veg and meat as you can at once; this way you have a week's worth of cooked food in the fridge, saving time (for shopping) and money (on cooking bills)

                    If you buy fatty meat and the fat runs off, use it to cook with. I never need to keep oil around except for salad dressing or buy fat to cook anything with anymore. I need to purchase less butter that way, too.

                      Tongue is very cheap and delicious. Drop it in a pot of water and simmer. When cooked, peal off the skin and throw it away. (Now, I suppose someone will tell me there is a use for it and good nutrients in it, but it's pretty unappetizing looking.) The meat of the tongue looks like any other meat and is mild, tender, sweet and delicious. Add flavorings after cooking.

                        Have you got a slow cooker? Good way to turn crappy meat into something tender and delicious.
